Welcome to CSR Nation
I have recently set up my own accounts with UPS and FedEx. I had been taking packages to FedEx and UPS locations to have them shipped. That was a real time waster. I finally took the time to set up my own accounts. Now I can print my labels on the computer and simply drop the packages in the UPS or FedEx boxes. I don't know why I did not do this a long time ago.
Another thing that I love is I have a local courier service. If I call in my packages early in the day it costs next to nothing to have things hand-delivered.
